Product Description

About the Author

Kristina Stephenson Kristina Stephenson trained as a set and costume designer. She had a successful career in Theatre and Children’s TV until she had her children. Wanting to stay at home with them, she turned to illustration. She has illustrated many non-fiction books. Inspired to write this picture book by her own son Charlie (who doesn’t have stinky socks), she showed it to a friend in the book trade. Thankfully for us, he recommended that she send it to Egmont. With a change in artwork style, it’s clear that a rare and exciting new picture book talent has emerged. Kristina lives with her husband, who is a musician, and her son and daughter in Wiltshire.

My sons's a fan, so we've been woking through the series. My husband and I are both less than keen on reading these, but as the boy likes them, we do. Personally I find them a little over-long and don't enjoy the wordplay very much.

But my son thinks they are great. In this episode, Charlie has just left a party (from a previous title), but someone has cast a really dreadful spell on everyone and everything... Things look different. And a suspicious-looking stranger shows up... Just what is going on?

We are familiar enough with Stephenson's series now to see the patterns they follow, some repeated characters, settings and phrases. Reassuring for a listener, they can guess possibly what will happen. And of course, lift the flaps to continue the story.

Charlie is a good role model, as ever - brave, resourceful and a good friend.

I do like the drawings, very cute animals and children, a spooky world that isn't too scary.

There is a good ending to the tale with everything resolved and a good knight successful.

One for ages 3-6.

I love this book. There is a lot going on and it is very exciting having to lift the flaps and see what is lurking behind them.The illustrations are wonderful too. I cannot wait to give it to my nephew for Christmas - he will really enjoy it.

We had the first 4 of the Sir Charlie Stinky Socks books already and my two boys absolutely love them. They are a little bit different to your average children's read with lots of foldout bits and weird and wonderful characters. They are written in a really interesting way that captures the kids' attention and there's plenty of mystery and intrigue thrown in. The books do follow on from eachother in some ways, but they each also standalone, so it wouldn't really matter what order you read them in. I would 100% wholeheartedly recommend this for little boys (and probably girls too, although as a mum of 2 boys, I'm not an authority in that!)

Quite a long book, and one that starts with potential of being a nice flowing and rhyming story. I see most of these reviews and just wonder if I am a too impatient parent!!! Then the rhyming gets lost (quite quickly) and there are asides that are sort of lost on a 4 year old (and their parent!) The story is quite a nice one overall but we mostly read books at bedtime and that is not conducive to opening the book fully to expose the folded pages and was honestly unsure whether to unfold first or afterwards. There are many many more enjoyable books out there. I would leave this one.

I brought this book for my 5 year old daughter. She LOVED it, and I really mean she love's it, she made me read it every night for a month.

last week I was invited into her school to read to 10 4 and 5 year olds so of course my daughter insisted I read this. Every child loved it there were lots of giggles and eyes light up when you open up the folded page's.

We own all the books in the Sir Charlie Stinky Socks series and I buy them for childrens birthdays too.

A great read for mums dads and the children!

Should be compulsory reading in schools and for all parents and grandparents. If you are uncle or Aunt you will be the best uncle/aunt for buying any of the series

This is quite a long bedtime book (takes about 10 mins) and my daughter (4) loves it. It's great fun to read aloud if you like a bit of acting!

The books are very colourful and the story contains rhyme as well as normal passages of text.

We have lots of giggles reading it, especially at the cat called 'Envelope'!
